1979 Ford F-150 Ranger. Top Of The Line F-150. — The heart of this beast is a Ford marine 460. Thats right, its out of an old speed boat. The performance is amazing, with 0-60 at right about est. 4.5 secs. Braking is sufficient, handling is a little loose. Build quality is very solid, only repairs are new fly wheel, and fixed bell housing. Paint is candy apple red bottom fading into shiny silver. Interior half matches extrerior with candy apple red dash, and red and black bench seat. Mileage is about 10-12 mpg, relatively high for this engine, and very fun to drive, plenty of power to pull through anything.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

A Seriously Fun Ride — It has a 429 cobra jet in it. 650 horsepower. braking is good but not 100%. As for handling it is smooth. Its built like nothing else. interior is nice needs some work and exterior is spotless. It eats gas like it was candy so i get 1 mile per gulp. maitenance is easy. OMG this truck is so flippin fun to drive.

Overall A Winner,buy One Drive It And Have The Time Of Your Life — I've been restoring this 1979 4X4 with a 300 six and 4 speed. On and off road performance is great! Very dependable. Good gas mileage. This truck is a blast to drive.The orange color and overall great condition always draws attention when I drive it. I would recommend one of these dependable,solid built trucks to anyone.Do yourself a favor and buy one of these trucks while you can still find one!

This Truck Is A Beast. — Build like a tank. I off road it five to ten times a year and it has yet to leave me stranded. From hill climbs to having it hood deep in mud it just keeps coming back for more. Its a great truck.

Veronica — My truck is a 1979 Ford F-150 regular cab short box. its got a 460 engine with 400 horses, its really fast and gets 15 miles per gallon when driven nice. Her name is Veronica because black is beautiful. She has custom leather bucket seats, and a thumping sound system. She's a real eye grabber.

Best Truck Iv Ever Owned!!! — I own one of these trucks. It is a short bed stepside that is Lifted 4in in the suspension and 3in in the body. This truck has been the most reliable truck that I have ever owned. I have had some problems with it but nothing major. I have restored it from the frame up. Great truck over all.
